    The model is trained with 499 billion tokens (a unit of text or punctuation in natural language processing) and has 175 billion parameters (learned patterns from the training dataset).

    The wealth of information it has to pull from is gigantic and this is why it is able to, with some prompting, produce a diverse range of material from poems to news articles to lines of code with astonishing coherence.

    redmi 9 review ndtv gadgets 360

    There''s been a sudden surge of budget phone launches in the past few months; the Redmi 9 from Xiaomi being one of them.

    This recent offering is priced under Rs. The Redmi 9 is fairly tall and wide, which is something I immediately noticed when trying to use it with one hand.

    Thankfully, it doesn''t feel too thick or heavy even though it measures around 9mm and weighs 194g.

    Roland Garros 2020: Women's singles draw analysis, preview and predictions

    There will be no 'bubble' in Paris the way there was in New York, but that doesn''t mean the City of Lights isn''t being haunted by the shadow of COVID 19.

    Just a couple of days ago, six players from the qualifiers were withdrawn from the tournament over coronavirus concerns and one of them plans to sue.

    We don''t know whether there will be 5000 spectators allowed into the grounds everyday, or 1000, or none at all.

    go ahead, try to sneak bad words past ai filters—for research wired

    Facebook s artificial intelligence researchers have a plan to make algorithms smarter by exposing them to human cunning.

    Thursday, Facebook s AI lab launched a project called Dynabench that creates a kind of gladiatorial arena in which humans try to trip up AI systems.

    Challenges include crafting sentences that cause a sentiment scoring system to misfire, reading a comment as negative when it is actually positive, for example.

    how the pandemic transformed this songbird’s call wired

    When the cat s away the mice will play, or so the saying goes.

    But what happens when humanity s away, locked inside to slow the Covid 19 pandemic? It turns out that birds will play a sexier song, that is.

    Writing today in the journal Science, researchers report that male white crowned sparrows around the San Francisco Bay Area exploited the sudden drop in anthropogenic noise when the region went on strict lockdown in April and May.

    facebook busts russian disinfo networks as us election looms wired

    Facebook announced on Thursday that it has taken down three "coordinated inauthentic behavior " networks promoting disinformation that included nearly 300 Facebook and Instagram accounts, along with dozens of Facebook Pages and Groups.

    While the efforts were seemingly run independently, and were focused primarily outside of the US, each has ties to Russian intelligence and they collectively provide a sobering echo of the social media assault that roiled the 2016 election.

    The networks Facebook tackled dated back at least three years, but most had few followers at the time they were caught.

    There s the consideration of whether the gadget fits into your life right now, at a time when our needs have changed considerably.

    There s also the fact that most of the products launching this year were dreamt up in 2019 or earlier.

    Back then, tech companies had a different vision of the future in mind, or at least different ideas of what the lifestyle images in their 2020 product marketing kits would look like.

  • Inside Dharini Bhaskar’s debut These, Our Bodies, Possessed by Light, longlisted for the JCB Prize for Literature 2020 - Art-and-culture News , Firstpost

    Dharini Bhaskar s early research for her JCB Prize longlisted debut novel These, Our Bodies, Possessed by Light began as a student of English literature, when writing the book wasn t even a thought.

    In reading 20th century literature and the family saga in modern fiction, she found not just a theoretical framework that she could build upon, but was also exposed to the type of literature that has deeply shaped her writing life.

    More than anything else, it made me aware of the contradictions inherent in this unit we call a family a unit that is deeply conservative yet home to firebrand participants; that is the fount of our most enduring pleasures and the deepest of our agonies, she tells Firstpost.
